Speaking on Monday at the ceremony held to mark the second anniversary of the martyrdom of Haj Qasem Soleimani in the prayer hall of Tehran, Ayatollah Dr Seyyed Ebrahim Raisi said, "Haj Qasem is introduces as not a person but a culture, the way and the school".
The President stated, "If a person's existential personality develops, he is no longer just a real person, but has an existential development, which is referred to as a nation and an ummah".
Dr Raisi added, "By following the verses of the Qur'an and the teachings of the Ahl al-Bayt, Martyr Soleimani has acquired an existential scope; he is not a person, he is a school, and this school is not destroyed by terror or missiles. The school stays, the school survives".
The President added, "The path and school of Haj Qasem Soleimani is along the school of Imam Khomeini and Imam Khamenei. He was a man of truth; he was a man of love for God and sincerity".
Dr Raisi emphasised, "Haj Qasem deeply believed that the United States cannot do a damn thing against us. He deeply believed that excuses such as "it is not possible", "can we?", "there are obstacles" and "we must somehow compromise" were not in Haj Qasem's logic".
The President said, "Martyr Soleimani acted as a school and a lofty ideal, he was a commander, he was a general, he was a military figure, but he should not be seen only as a high-ranking military figure, he had a culture".
Emphasising that Haj Qasem sought to solve the problems of the people and the families of the martyrs, Dr Raisi said, "Martyr Soleimani was a powerful diplomat and a field diplomat who excelled in both fields".

Ayatollah Raisi stated, "Martyr Soleimani was a great commander and strategist who did not create a dichotomy between the field and diplomacy; He was a powerful diplomat and a field diplomat who excelled in both fields".

"He was a revolutionary commander and a supra-factional commander whose task was to save Islam and Muslims, to ward off evil, corruption and oppression," he said.

The President continued, "Martyr Soleimani's goal was to defend Sunni, Shiite, Palestinian, Lebanese, Yemeni, Yezidi, Christian and all religious people in the Abrahamic religions, so his vision was how to remove the enemy from the region and how to liberate the region".

Dr Raisi said, "The enemy was worried about the Hezbollah front in Lebanon, but several Hezbollah factions were created and became the Hezbollah and Resistance Front in the region, and the international resistance movement".

"This is the recognition of capacities; Capacities must be recognised in a timely manner and used in the face of an arrogant current with courage, bravery, motivation and readiness," said Raisi.

The President advised the young that Martyr Soleimani was an impasse-breaker and that you, the young, should not be disappointed until an obstacle stands in your way, adding, "He did not recognise any obstacle in front of him, he overcame all obstacles by relying on God and with confidence".

Addressing the Americans, the President said, "Haj Qasem Soleimani was the official guest of the Iraqi Prime Minister. You both broke the sovereignty of Iraq and assassinated a nation, not a single person".

"What should be done in this horrible crime that was very hard and expensive for the whole Islamic Ummah? The aggressor and murderer and the main criminal, who is the then President of the United States must be brought to justice, retribution must be carried out," he said.

The President stressed, "If the mechanism for a fair trial of Mr Trump, Pompeo and other criminals is provided, they will be punished for their shameful acts in a fair trial for committing this horrific crime. If not, I tell all American statesmen that do not doubt that revenge will come".
